WOYWW 217, 12 tags of 2013 - July

Here's my finished July tag for 12 tags of 2013,
 inspired by Tim Holtz
Onto a manilla tag I flicked distress ink stains (Broken China, Salty Ocean, Festive berries and Pewter) onto the tag using a brayer.
Stamped randomly onto the tag using a variety of stamps, I highlighted parts of the Statue of Liberty using an white pen. The edged of the tag were distressed and edged with Chipped Sapphire.
The ribbon was stamped with a script stamp then heat set before I used festive berries and salty ocean stains plus a misting of  water.
The embellishments are all pre-cut grunge board, the wings and heart firstly had a good coating of rock candy crackle then the wings were soaked in Broken China stains followed by Pewter; the heart was soaked in Barn Door, Festive Berries and edged with Tarnished Brass: The stars were colours with Broken China stains and then finished off with a little rock candy stickles.

So this is on my work desk today if you're interested in seeing more work desks around the world hop over to the Stamping ground to find out all of the details.
